      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

nutrition question

Recommended Posts

How are caloric values of food determined? For instance, a serving of shredded wheat might have 200 kcal in it, but I would think your body doesn't see alot of that energy as a lot of it is undigestable fiber. Just wondering.

 

How do they determine how many calories are in milk? It's not like they can use a bomb calorimeter. Or can they?

yeah I bet there's a room in the basement over at the FDA full of chained-up fat dudes grubbing on pot pies and new ice cream flavors. the resulting indigestion and stool size/consistency leads to an accurate number on the box.

That's what they taught me in Univ. Wouldn't surprise me to find that things have changed.

George Bush has ordered the FDA to move the calorie-counting lab to Terri Schiavo's hospital room and hire her as a test subject in a last-ditch effort to keep her alive.

slothrop don't you realize that the power of prayer is what keeps Schiavo alive?

 

I do wonder what comes out of a "feeding tube" at a hospital. Is there just some IV bag hanging above the bed that says "food" on it?

Now there is ammunition when the next thread gets chopped up by the mods. Jury, I present exhibit A, a moderator not only tolerating, but actually encouraging revolting discourse.
